About Us:

Or Tzedek (Hebrew for Light of Justice) is an unforgettable social justice program over the summer for teens with all different backgrounds including those from interfaith homes to learn about advocacy from a Jewish perspective. Through hands-on service, teen-led social action projects and education about Jewish values and social justice, teens learn about challenges facing Chicago’s diverse communities and take action to combat them.

Resources and Additional Information

We are starting our recruitment for the 2012 Or Tzedek Summer Program. Or Tzedek’s summer program is an 8-day summer experience in which Jewish high school teens (participants must have completed Grade 9) gain leadership skills, strengthen their Jewish identity, and further their commitment to social justice through hands-on service. Each session engages teens with a broad range of community organizations throughout Chicago and offers a wide variety of service experiences, as well as forums for exploration and discussion. If you have any questions about Or Tzedek, please contact Rebecca Katz, Teen Programs Coordinator, at 312-663-0960 ext.124 or rebecca@jcua.org. Check out our website at www.ortzedek.org for more information. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
